Prosecutors mentioned the names of Attorney General ST Burhanuddin and former Supreme Court chief justice Hatta Ali on Wednesday in their indictment against prosecutor Pinangki Sirna Malasari, who is accused of assisting graft convict Djoko Soegiarto Tjandra during his time as a fugitive from the law.
Pinangki is standing trial at the Jakarta Corruption Court on charges of money laundering and bribery after allegedly agreeing to accept bribes amounting to US$500,000 from Djoko for conspiring to secure an acquittal for him from the Supreme Court.
The court found Djoko guilty in 2009 for his involvement in the high-profile Bank Bali corruption case. In the indictment letter, prosecutors said that Burhanuddin and Hatta were listed in Pinangki’s action plan to secure the acquittal for Djoko, who was then on the run.
